Inscription.  
This DX Station was located at the corner of W. Washington and N. Main. This was taken in 1938 when Dale Sprouls owned the station.

Later Bob Overholser took possession. He operated the station until the late 1960's. This station had an outdoor lift, so not too many oil changes were done in the winter months.

Inn the early 1970's, Dick and Bob Miracle took over the station and converted it to Conoco. It has since been torn down and used as a parking lot.

For more information about the DX Station, stop at the Churubusco History Center.
